Hello, recently i have noticed that my computer automatically connects to an IP address every time I turn my internet connection on. I did netstat -o command in Windows PowerShell and this is what I was shown as results:

PS C:\Users\USER> netstat -o

Active Connections

Proto Local Address Foreign Address State PID

lax04s01-in-f155:http TIME_WAIT 0
lax04s01-in-f152:http TIME_WAIT
a63:http TIME_WAIT 0

My computer automatically connects to lax04s01-in-f152:http even though i have no programs open or internet browsers. I checked task manager for programs that might me using the interent and to the best of my knowledge there is none. So how do i kill these connections? How do I block IP's or websites from connecting to me?

I do not have a router yet. I also would like to be able to do it without a third party application. If more information is needed please let me know. Thank you.
